Anna Livia Dublin International Opera Festival 2008

BMPFrom 8th to 14th September 2008, an operatic feast awaits you in Dublin with Samson and Dalila, the exquisitely tuneful work by Camille Saint-Saëns.

Samson et Dalila by Saint-Saëns makes a triumphant return to the Irish stage. A long time popular favourite in the world opera houses, it attracted many of the leading singers of the day such as Caruso at the Metropolitan in 1915.

Samson et Dalila features two of the world’s most celebrated arias- “Fair spring is returning” and “Softly awakes my heart".

JPEG Following his tremendous success in the role of Zurga in The Pearl Fishers last year, French baritone Pierres-Yves Pruvot makes a very welcome return to the Anna Livia Opera Festival as the High Priest.
